    I always wondered, not that I would do this personally as I think it's wrong, but wouldn't it be really easy to just hide your phone on you during an exam and then ask to go the toilet, then check your phone for answers to questions you've already seen in the toilet? Does anyone do this?

    The really chav-like kids in my school did exactly that, got away with it for french and biology double, one got found out in chemistry double (though I don't think they managed to get his phone). It's possible but incredibly high-risk.

    also it doesn't even work that well as exam technique and answering correctly isn't something you get from a quick google search.

    I think that the invigilators watch you go to the toilet so no I'm afraid.

    Sadly that's the reason why you're not allowed to go to the toilet xD

    But you're not allowed any electrical devices or whatever in the exam hall anyway, and I imagine that you'd be escorted to the toilets so you wouldn't be able to get your phone on the way.
    I don't think you're allowed to go to the toilet in my school anyway lmao

    Invigilators sometimes check people's pockets so don't do that.

    Talking about that, I was stopped and searched so many times when I wore track suits and never when I came in jeans and a shirt. Thusly, although I do not condone it, if you are gonna cheat, take care of what you wear.

    I imagined someone could just hide it in like their bra or something, i dont think anyone would check there.. and youd just put it there before the exam. Were allowed electronics but they have to be off and in bags. I dont think id ever risk this though, its better to just revise and get the good grades properly
